1996 Action Sci-Fi 7 Stars Oscar Winner. The aliens are here and the only thing we have to match the alien's superior technology is Will Smith & Jeff Goldblum. This a great go-to Sci-Fi flick. Full of edge-of-your-seat excitement, aliens, humor, sexy hunks (Harry Connick Jr. too), and love. Something for everyone. Bill Pullman is a perfect US President. Jeff Goldblum is the quirky conservationist scientist who teams up with Smith, a Captain in the Air Force, and flies one of the alien's ships up to the mother ship to plant a computer virus in its system which will deactivate their shields making them vulnerable to our attacks. It's a great movie with a feel-good triumphant ending. Rated PG-13, 165 minutes in length. It's a movie you will go to time and time again.
